My son has several places to go for Halloween. He's 17 now... so they are different places.. but still... they are dress up, fun times places. He's running a costume contest at his school... (He's involved in Student Council as School Trustee), and he's got a couple gatherings with his friends. So he went out and bought himself a costume. This is the first year that I haven't put it together for him, in almost his whole life. I am now deprived of the driving around, arguing, looking for something to put together. Going to Value Village, and finding little pieces of the puzzle, and seeing something in my mind, coming out to fruition. Nope. None of that. He calls it a good thing. He doesn't understand. That's what makes us Mom's feel important and involved. Mom-like!
Another new chapter. Another good-bye. But this is a positive blog. A new positive Sandie. So... it's NOT a good-bye. It's a hello! Hello to freedom! Hello to more Me-time. Hello to an independant child! A child who takes care of these things himself! What did my little independant boy come up with? Super Mario! Tights, belly, mustache, hat. His girlfriend wants to go as Miss Peach. His friend? As Luigi. Who says just little ones can enjoy Halloween?
The *Art* of Scrapbooking?
Do you consider yourself a scrapbooker? Or do you consider yourself an artist? Does the distinction matter? IS there a distinction? When does a scrapbooker become an artist?
The reason I ask, is that I am playing with the Project 52 challenges. Right now, we're on Challenge 2... and it's a lot of Mixed Media. I've never played a lot with mixed media... but it feels very *artsy*. When I scrapbook, I don't always feel artsy. But when I work with the mixed media... I feel a bit more *artistic*. You?
Help? Speaking of artistic, and scrapbooking... we are often asked to identify what style of scrapbooker we are. I struggle with that. Would you mind having a look at a few of my pages, and give me your opinion on what style of scrapper you think I am?
